Better Search Capabilities
Can we have more filters, where we can specify multiple filters simultaneously and not only restricted to 1 or 2 filters? So we should have filters like the sender, receiver, subject, body, has attachments, etc. and we use whichever combination of those to help us search quicker and more accurate.
Search in "All" for an email address or name should suggest "From/To/cc/bcc" not just "From". This leads to confusion and missed results. "From" search should default when searching in Inbox, same as "To" defaults when searching Sent Items.

Use web app outlook365 and receive many email with subject for e.g. "NMK69227 Invoice 6264872240" or "ML IMP INV 5054685776 BL 598793637"
and want make search in email by contextual keyword for e.g. 69922 or 5468, not from the beginning of the word,
but always receive message that now result find.
I try to search emails between two dates, and the filtering tools do not work. Thanks
Enable fast research with part of e-mail adress with a symbol like * or $. For instance: from:"*@firmname.com". So that all senders from that firm will appear.
cannot search anything include people, email messages etc

Search is pathetic! Does not search based on From and Keywords. Really frustrating
Go back to the old version of Outlook. This new version is worthless.
Hard to find new emails, hard to navigate thru folders and searching for emails. Older emails sometimes show up before new email even if the filter is set for All emails and sort by date.
Emails should be listed as it comes and even in the search it should still show up as it was received. Newest on top. You can move the pin email area if you like so it is not taking up any email space.
I am finding a couple of issues with the new version of Outlook. The first is when I search people within my origanization, I can no longer see their contact information. Next, when I search for emails I usually get a message that reads someting like "we can't perform search at this time".

I would like to search by either / or:
email from (sender)
email to (receiver)
Currently the email search function is very limited and frustrating
